Coming at a whopping 7.9 pounds, this volume was made carbon neutral by Climate Partners. Says Sebastian: “I am very proud of this book. It is my most accomplished work. It is a visual tour of a part of the world that hardly anyone has ever witnessed”.

Sebastian named one of the world’s 50 Most Adventurous Men

Men's Journal's 50 Most Adventurous Men

Men’s Journal released its list of the 50 Most Adventurous Men. Sebastian was humbled and honored to be listed among many of his heroes. It is hard to compile such a list when so many others feel like they are missing.

Still, this reinforces his conviction that adventure and awareness work hand in a hand in the current climate crisis. As Sebastian has said: “we face an ‘all hands on deck’ moment if we are to reclaim our history and rewrite a happy ending for our children’s generation”.

It is also great encouragement for Sebastian’s THE LAST GREAT MARCH–NORTH POLE 2016 mission–unsupported, unassisted walk from land to the geographic North Pole with partner Mark George. Stay tuned for more on that!

You can find the list here.
